IT’S TIME TO RESIST

“Submit yourselves, therefore, to God. RESIST the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7)

Do you know what time it is? Is your WATCH synchronized with heaven? For those who are watching and discerning movements in the spiritual realm, know that this is not the time to acquiesce, comply, or back down. Nor is it the time to fight one another or battle for vindication. As the enemies of God spew out their defiant destruction on anything holy and pure, it is time for the people of God to take their stand and resist the devil.

“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. RESIST him, firm in your faith.” (1 Peter 5:8)

If you think it’s time to pull back and sing campfire songs for the sake of unity, your clock is off. This is not the time to hope for some false compromise in hopes of a better day dawning. Our spiritual adversary is beating down the door of this nation and demanding entrance. The principalities aligned against us are not looking for another “opportune time” (see Luke 4:13). They have already determined that this is their hour, and this is their time to steal, kill, and destroy. They will stop at NOTHING to seize control and subjugate any who stand in their way. This is why we cannot sit down, go back to sleep, or stand on the sidelines. We must stand at the gates of this nation together and resist this demonic onslaught.

How do we do that?

“Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand (resist) in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.” (Ephesians 6:13)

PURSUE THE TRUTH by asking questions, searching for answers, and verifying information. Don’t presume to know the outcome or assume we’re being beaten. Get with others who are on the frontlines and search out the matter until there is clarity. Ask for first-hand revelation and know that the truth will always set you free.

GUARD YOUR HEART AND MIND by knowing God’s Words and refusing counterfeit voices. Recognize the wolves and avoid their deceptive arguments. This is the time of separating the truth from the lies and the compromised from the pure in heart. A necessary division between the wolves and the sheep must take place in order to bring the true sheep into oneness of heart and agreement in vision.

DEMONSTRATE A HOLY LIFE in your speech and your conduct. Don’t get pulled into meaningless disputes and distracting rumors. Guard your integrity by being a person of your word and a vessel of honor. Speak and act in such a way to nullify any threat or accusation that comes against you. It is the testimony and prayers of the righteous that are powerful and effective.  

WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT. Do not allow yourself to doubt God’s promises because of peer pressure or natural circumstances. Fix your eyes on things above and not on things below. Build up your most holy faith by revisiting and declaring aloud the purposes of God and His covenant claim on this land and His people.

PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER to be persevering in hope, patient in affliction, and resolute in our cause. Be merciful to the weak and compassionate to the doubting. But, to those who side with the darkness and defend its wicked hold, refuse their demands and hold your ground. Know that the power of your voice can silence the enemy and thwart his advance.

To RESIST is not fleshly aggression or forceful domination. It is not yelling in someone’s face or attacking someone’s character or viewpoint. It is simply standing for the truth and holding your ground – regardless of the opposition. It is clinging to God’s words and prophetic decrees with a fervent conviction and righteous zeal. For the enemy to flee, we must do our part by resisting his dictates and standing firm in our profession of faith. May we be those who overcome by keeping God’s words until the end. The authority over nations will be our reward (Revelations 2:26).

    I am so grateful to be listening to you! God is using you to speak into my heart. Ever since November 4th, God has burdened me with a heavy conviction to earnestly pray, engage in spiritual warfare, and to listen to His voice in an upside down world. I come from churches that deny prophetic voices, and the sign gifts so I feel alone in this battle even though I know I’m not alone. My family and husband all think I’ve lost it, and they are believers. Thanks so much for being there for me! I am following the Lord Jesus first of all and the Holy Spirit continues to guide my thoughts and prayers through His Word, and other information coming my way. I will seek out Intercessors for America. God richly bless you as we wage this war together.

  3. Thank you so much for all you say. Have you seen “Absolute Proof” on OAN a dcocumentary published by Mick Lindell or The documentary at MichaelJLindell.com. It is absolute truth that is amazing. Amy L. Moore

    • Pretty interesting disclaimer at the beginning: “The statements and claims expressed in this program are presented at this time as opinions only and are not intended to be taken or interpreted by the viewer as established facts.”

      I wonder why OAN isn’t willing to stand behind the documentary?

    Thank you for reminding us to continue to resist the devil that would like to take over the USA. We will continue to resist the darkness and speak God’s will and His Kingdom over the USA! God loves America that was started to be able to worship Almighty God freely.

  5. This is comforting. To be found doing what the Master says we are to be doing even when he is away so when he returns he will be pleased. I always loved that scripture and used to wonder how that would apply to our everyday world when we were younger. Now it is most apparent, because we are in a time where everything is deceptive.

  6. Excellent!!

    Amen, Wanda. Once again your timely, wise words come with a call to action.

    I so appreciate you!

  8. Excellent word, Wanda.

  9. Amen and Amen. The promise maker is the promise keeper. Thank You for providing us with a supply chain of faith food in this battle.

  10. Thank you, Wanda. Very timely wise advice.

  11. What strikes me about your message–which is spot on–is that the things we are to be doing at this hour are no different than what we are always supposed to be doing. “Blessed is the man, who when his master returns, is found doing his job.”
